    May God be with you during this hard time... Brent our memories will always be apart of me. We had so much fun when I came to Columbus in May and it was just like our old times when were in school. I know you are smiling down on all of us. Your laugh, smile and jokes will always be apart of the people who you have touched. You will be truly missed. Rest easy Angel!

    When someone dies, many say, "I want to see them again." The Bible tells us this is possible please read, John 5:28-29. This will happen in the very near future. Please read Revelation 21: 3-4 and notice this fact death will be no more. May this be of comfort to you and your family at this present time and in the future. My condolences to the family.

    Accept my sincere condolences. May you find some comfort in the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: "3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials" Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us if this. Find out more online at JW.ORG

    Donald Obrent Matthews Speak of Obrent as you have always DONE, Remember the good times, laughter, and FUN. Share the happy memories we've MADE, Do NOT them wither or FADE. I'll be the voice that whispers in the BREEZE, I'm peaceful now, put your mind at EASE. I've rested my eyes and gone to SLEEP, But memories we've shared are yours to KEEP. Sometimes our final days may be a TEST, But remember me when I was at my BEST. Although things may not be the SAME, Don't be afraid to use my NAME Let your sorrow last for just a WHILE, Comfort each other and try to SMILE.
